Anthony Joshua may scrap second Wembley bout

Britain’s IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua may scrap a second bout that was scheduled to take place at Wembley Stadium.

The 29-year-old signed a two-date agreement to fight at the national stadium, with the first being his 22 September win over Alexander Povetkin.

However, Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has cast doubts over a return to London, after saying a fight with Dillian Whyte in the UK or American Jarrell Miller in New York is set be Joshua's next test.

The next date at Wembley is scheduled for 13 April but Hearn believes Whyte, 30, would require more time if he come for a fight in the UK, ruling that date off.

BBC Sport claims Miller is the more likely candidate to face Joshua next as he would provide a gateway into a new market by giving Joshua the opportunity for his first bout in the US.

Miller, 30, hails from New York and has 23 wins and a draw on his 24-fight record.
